I was wandering once if my relay attenuator would fit the job. But I do not have an O2 nor any friends with one here to try it out. There is a slight chance it would fit in the original enclosure without batteries installed. Actually it is that small. If you want to check it I have a few prototypes. There is a web address with pictures in my profile.

If you live in Sweden I'll build one for you for 350-400SEK and you pay the shipping fees.

The correct link to my website is to be found in the footer below and a direct link to the O2/ODAC combo is here O2+ODAC Headphone Amplifier / DAC combo

USD price is slightly up at the moment due to the strong Swiss Franc...

he did send some refunds too, very strange situation

I think its much more likely RS just got bored and moved on, can you blame him? either that or he was paid off or snuffed out =P
We can rule out him getting board and moving on because he would have let other people know about it. I predict it's medical or just an extremely busy project at work.

wow, now thats some faith, hopefully its not medical because its a pretty darn long time, too long to not find a spare minute at work too...

I actually think the best outcome if we are thinking of him, is that hes just gotten bored and moved on... maybe its not for those waiting on his word for decisions they are making or projects they are building, but really, what more is there to do here? hasnt he given more than enough to the project for you guys to pick it up from here?


I actually thought the best outcome from this project was not the amps, more getting people to do a bit of thinking for themselves about the decisions they make in DIY. it seems to have had the opposite effect for some.


what makes you think that a a person who goes to great efforts to not reveal his identity might think twice about moving on without explaining why? does he even need to explain why?

The last email correspondence I had with RS was in early Aug 2012(needless to say his replies were quick). BTW I had read on his blog sometime back that he had got an offer from Behringer to test their product series,maybe he is busy with that.

I've been using the O2 for awhile but never satisfied with the bass.. Quite tight and not deep enough for my taste. I'm using the recomended opamps, anyone tried other combination and got better bass response?
